PIAT (Peabody Individual Assessment Test - Revised)
This is a standardized, nationally normed, individual test and meets the requirements for testing in the State of Florida.
The test assesses 6 contacts areas: General Information, Reading Recognition, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, Spelling, and Written Expression. This test is individually administered orally and visually with the exception of the written expression portion. It is for grades K - 12 / ages 5 - 22. Is not timed, however it usually takes approximately one hour to administer. After the test is administered I will score and review the results with the parent as well as answer any questions they may have.
This is a very popular test. I believe because it is less threatening, not timed, shorter in duration, you get your scores immediately, the score give you a lot of useful information and if you get a good administer, it can be very relaxing (as far as testing goes).
Personally I strive to make the testing environment as comfortable as possible for the students. I don't want them to feel rushed or stressed.
